Oh, wow. You made really good scores on your compass exam too. That's awesome! I called Ripley and spoke to student services before I passed my math so I could get an idea of what they consider a competitive score and the lady that I spoke to was not helpful.
She kept telling me that there are other factors they take into consideration not just your compass scores. I told her I understood that but I knew the test scores played a huge part in their decision making. So I asked her once again what they would consider a competitive score and she just repeated herself. She wasn't giving up any information.
But when I passed by math at Covington my instructor did tell me that my score was nice and competitive so I don't think we'll have a problem when it comes to our scores.
I also work in home health. My back can't handle bathing, grooming, dressing & changing diapers for 20 patients every day so I prefer working in home health (at least as a CNA). And the fact that you work in healthcare already will still give you an advantage over students who do not.
If I'm accepted into the program, I'll be driving a minimum of 50 miles one way. I'm from Memphis & I don't like the area of the TCAT here so I'm willing to make the long commute. Most people probably wouldn't travel that far but I've got a Honda and they're known for their quality and I'm so ready to get started that I don't want to wait until next fall for a full time program to begin. I can't wait that long!!
Well I hope to see you in orientation and I'm hopeful that we will both get accepted. Keep me posted if you find out any more information about the program and I'll do the same. Do you know anyone else that's applied for the January 2016 class in Ripley?
